Daisy Powerline 880

The 880 has a bittersweet history. It is an accurate powerful multi ammo multi-pump pneumatic rifle with a great look and feel.

It’s also the first Daisy that was held responsible for an accidental death due to neglect. This didn’t force the gun out of production but it did make Daisy apply warning labels on the receiver. The rifle pictured is an early pre warning label gun.

As I’ve mentioned before I am not in the habit of collecting non functioning guns. This one arrived working but failed to work after 10 shots. It turns out that this is indicative of the model and may be due to the sensitive nature of pneumatic guns.

Eventually this 880 will get a seal job and work good as new. This is an accurate, quiet and powerful rifle.

Double Barrel Mania

The Daisy 1939 Double Barrel Model 104 rifles are one of the most sought after collectors items. This makes it expensive. Especially if it’s a Plymouth made gun. You could easily pay $1000 and up for a later Rogers Model 21 from 1968.

In 1959 the Plymouth factory was rather 1- still functioning or 2- still using the Plymouth stamp on their Rogers manufactured guns. This is now a known fact that the latter was a factory practice and I don’t think Plymouth was still around in 1959 since they moved to Rogers in 1958. Daisy made several toy double barrel cork and (apparently) double barrel dart guns.

I have not seen any listings on this model and it looks similar to the cork gun from Rogers I featured a few days ago. The closest I can come to identifying this gun is it’s maybe from (at the latest) 1959, stamped Plymouth.

This has no model number or name connected to it that I’m aware of. What I can tell you is these cool little double barrels are much less expensive than their big bb brothers. The prices of course are going up as they are with all vintage Daisy guns.

The Rogers gun that I just returned to the seller was very nice and I would have kept it but because the gun is riveted together I’m unable to repair it. Plus I do not buy non functioning guns. I collect so I can shoot and enjoy them first and foremost. And miraculously enough the first Daisy’s produced back in 1898 are still functioning bb guns!

I have to admit I had to acquire this just for the cool factor and it’s affordable. A mini double barrel Daisy from …Plymouth… maybe. Cool? Undoubtedly!

Vintage Daisy 188 Pistol

The 188 is easily the most over looked of the 60’s to 80’s era bb air pistols. Sure it’s big and looks more like a weapon from Star Wars. But the Daisy 188 Pistol 24 shot repeater is one of the best if not THE best shooting gun made. It hits out at 50 yards, is extremely quiet, and it’s made entirely of metal.

The 188 models in our collection are all made in Rogers Arkansas. Accuracy is hit or miss (pun intended). As with all guns and markedly with this model accuracy will vary.

The Buck 105B & Cub 102

Here are two guns that are almost superficially identical. The Cub 102 circa late 50’s early 60’s pictured here is an interesting comparison to the current Buck 105B of 2018. The Cub is a joint production between Daisy and Comptometer Co. Rogers Arkansas.

The Buck to my assumption is a reissue of the 1930’s Buck Jr. . I’ve never even seen pictures of a Buck Jr. (I have seen vintage ads of the rifle) and it’s listed amongst the most prized of vintage Daisy’s.

Both of these guns shoot great and hit out at 50 yards. The Chinese made Buck gets a lot of trigger time and is accurate and durable. The plastic trigger, lever, and front sight do not detract at all from the guns performance. The new Buck is over a year old and still shooting great.

The only plastic on this vintage early 60’s 102 Cub is on the aluminum lever. It’s actually a nice inclusion and makes for a smooth closure.

A Vintage Daisy .118 Pistol

This .118 came in but had a twisted barrel. Luckily we were able to find a replacement from the same era and it now functions. This particular one is not the earliest model with a fixed rear sight but represents the models following. Our collection has a good range of early Daisy pistols with original boxes and targettes.

You can see the twist in the shot tube. It was probebly twisted on too tight which is common with the early model shot tubes. This pistol now has two shot tubes!

Win Some Loose Some

Here are this weeks acquisitions. A Daisy Double Barrel Toy Cork Pop gun from Rogers and a Daisy Long Rifle Model 80 from Plymouth.

Unfortunately the pop gun arrived in non functioning condition and as cool as it looks – I’m unable to fix it. Check out the Plymouth Double Barrel.

The all plastic stock Long Rifle is great. It shoots nice and strong as many of the 50’s guns seem to operate. This was amongst the last production rifles from the Plymouth factories.

I will be posting my research on the Daisy Long Rifle in a forthcoming post. If you have any information or history on this model contact us. Thanks – CaliAir
